Fast Demo 2016 Jun TUE.21

CBS:  After 0.7-0.8 reruns, the series finale of PERSON OF INTEREST was steady with last week at 1.0.

NBC:  AMERICA’S GOT TALENT was by far the night’s highest-rated show, but it fell 0.3 from last week to 2.3, which pushed MAYA & MARTY down 0.2 to 1.1 (and the latter was at 0.9 in its 2d half-hour, suggesting how much its lead-in is contributing).

ABC:  UNCLE BUCK lost half a point from last week’s debut to 1.0, following 0.8-0.7 reruns.  At 10PM, TO TELL THE TRUTH was down 0.2 from last week’s 10PM episode to 1.0.

FOX:  HOTEL HELL slipped 0.1 to 0.8, and COUPLED gained a tenth to 0.5.

CW:  CONTAINMENT was steady with last week’s 0.3, and also with its lead-in from a rerun of THE FLASH.

The CBS summer Wednesday line-up debuts tonight, with BIG BROTHER followed by the new AMERICAN GOTHIC.  In addition, HBO premieres ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY, the most visible fruit of its mammoth deal with ex-ESPN icon Bill Simmons.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
